The Susan Murphy Milano Show, “Time’s Up!”
Thursdays at 2pm ET
“All across this nation, we are witnessing widespread, shocking injustices inflicted on battered women and their children by the family courts.
So pervasive and serious are these injustices that every year, battered mothers and their professional and lay advocates from across the country gather together at the Battered Mothers Custody Conference, a weekend event dedicated to addressing these issues.– Dr. Mo Hannah”
